The Silent Traveller Returns Distinguished author, artist, calligrapher, and poet Chiang Yee wrote and illustrated a dozen "Silent Traveller" books, from 1937-1972. The second to focus on an American city was The Silent Traveller in Boston, originally published in 1959. Long out-of-print, the book captures Chiang's quiet and observant views, a new take on an old city, from Beacon Hill to the Fenway, from Copley Square to Jamaica Pond. Chiang travels further afield to neighboring towns on Cape Cod & the Islands, as well as to Concord, Salem, Rockport, and Plymouth. Illustrated with 16 color and 60 black-and-white illustrations by Chiang, the book presents a city that is both fresh and familiar. The reader who knows all about Boston will find new charms; the reader who knows only a little will find an urbane guide with a warm regard for the traditional and a refreshing interest in the human side of the city's past and present. "This not-so-silent travel book is more than a pleasant guide for perceptive, leisurely tourists, more than an attractive piece of bookmaking; it is a guide to understanding." --The New York Times Book Review.
